Upcoming 2012 country album releases
It's known that many farmers spend their days in the tractor listening to the sweet sound of steel guitars, at least our Agriculture.com readers do. Seventy-four percent of respondents in the AgAdvisor research panel like country music and 45% say it's their favorite genre. So get ready for some rocking new music and check out the upcoming 2012 country album releases.
Martina McBride, Hits and More
Including her top hits from RCA Records, Hits and More will include 17 previously released (and popular) songs with three new and unreleased ones.
Tim McGraw, Emotional Traffic
After some wrestling with his current label, Curb Records, McGraw has finally garnered the rights to release Emotional Traffic, which was finished in fall 2010. This will be his last album with the label.
Glen Campbell, Live in Japan
The 1975 album that was only released in Japan will finally be released worldwide by Real Gone Music. It will feature Campbell singing his own hits plus popular covers like Conway Twitty's "It's Only Make Believe."
Kellie Pickler, 100 Proof
25-year-old Pickler gets back down to her southern roots in 100 Proof. Included is her first single, "Tough" and "Mother's Day," a tune written with husband Kyle Jacobs about her estranged mother.
Neal McCoy, XII
McCoy's valiant return to country music is being coordinated by two soon-to-be country legends themselves, husband and wife duo Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. The two lend their vocals to the happy song, "A-OK," his first single off the new album.
Dierks Bentley, Home
The parent album to Top 10 hit, "Am I The Only One," Home is set to release in early February. This will be Bentley's eighth studio album and his first in two years.
